The Story Behind the Book
After writing Teen People of the Bible, I had quite a few teens and youth pastors and parents ask for another 100-day devo. The idea God gave me was for something to equip young people for life. It seems many young people, even so-called “good Christian kids” really lack the guidance and maturity to make decisions in life, to find God’s will, and to pursue Him with truth. So I set out to create a book that a teen could read over a summer, maybe even the summer between High School and college. Or maybe it something he tackles his first few months in college, when he’s sitting in that dorm room and doubting everything about life.
New Hope really stepped up with some great ideas to help shape this book. I’m grateful to their vision on this.
